Format
the medical arena, information changes quickly. What was irrelevant yesterday, may be paramount today. PharmCon’s News Connection series seeks to distill the most impactful news for health professionals from the vast sea of news that confronts us all, then bridge the gap between the immediacy of those critical items and the delay that occurs as that information is incorporated into more focused programming. Our team of skilled editors continually scans the emerging medical news to bring the most relevant pieces to the forefront and deliver them to you in a concise, practical manner. In this session, we investigate timely items, including: new migraine prevention medication, some cancer medications possibly protecting against COVID-19, DEA safety alert: fake fentanyl and methamphetamine, medication use in patients with new type 2 diabetes, nonselective beta blockers possibly protecting against liver cancer, fainting and falls with thiazides, and electronically discontinued medications that are still dispensed.
